About Dr. W. Glenn Lyle

Dr. Glenn Lyle is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon serving the Raleigh, NC community at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center since 2002. His main specialty is breast surgery, both reconstructive and cosmetic, as well as body contouring to improve his patients’ appearances after weight loss, pregnancy, and aging.

With more than 20 years of experience in his field, Dr. Lyle is able to provide trusted outcomes and address the needs of the most complex surgical cases with a personal approach.

In 1982, Dr. Lyle attended Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, MI. After graduation in 1986, Dr. Lyle completed a five-year general surgery residency at the University of Massachusetts in Worcester, MA. At UMass, Dr. Lyle continued his training in plastic surgery and was awarded the Mary Ellen Mangano Memorial Award by his peers for contributions to the General Surgery Residency Program. He achieved his board certification in general surgery in 1992 while pursuing his education in plastic surgery. He then completed a three-year plastic surgery residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.

Dr. Lyle is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and was re-certified in 2006 and again in 2016. He is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Southeastern Society of Plastic Surgeons, the North Carolina Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, as well as the Wake County Medical Society and North Carolina Medical Society.

Dr. Lyle was recently recognized as an IDEAL IMPLANT Preferred Surgeon due to his extensive expertise working with IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants, the latest technology in breast augmentation. With a unique structure surrounding these saline-filled implants, women can achieve beautiful results with zero risk of silent rupture. Dr. Lyle uses the IDEAL IMPLANT to help women look and feel their best. With the IDEAL IMPLANT, no expensive MRIs are needed, and they come with a lower risk of both capsule contracture and ruptures when compared to other implants.



"Did a wonderful job"

“Never a long wait, I really like my Dr Lyle very much. Always looks me in the eyes while speaking (and that matters to me) shows he’s actually listening to me. Always gives honest answers, compassionate to my needs. Did a wonderful job with the plastic surgery side of my total bilateral mastectomy. Thank you Dr. Lyle and staff for always treating me with such good care!”

"Dr. Lyle is awesome!"

“I am a mother of 3 and a wife to a wonderful husband. I love my family, but over the past 20 years, I have put a lot of love and attention into all 4 of them and felt it was finally time for me! . . . Dr. Lyle is awesome! My augmentation is very natural . . . I wanted to look very natural after my surgery. I definitely didn’t want anyone to whisper at the PTA “Wow, she just had a boob job.” So I look great. I am natural and proportionate for my body type.”

"Life changing"

“The results Dr. Lyle has given me through my Revisions has been life changing. I went from a woman who couldn’t stand looking in the mirror, or wearing a bikini, to a woman with a restored self confidence, and newfound appreciation for living life to the fullest . . . He has transformed what I was convinced to be a forever deformed consequence of poor decision making, into unimaginably beautiful results! I feel better than I ever thought possible, and I have Dr. Lyle to Thank for that. His commitment to his patience doesn’t end after the surgery either. He has continued to follow up with me throughout my healing process. ”
